The unbeaten Brisbane Heat team won against Sydney Thunder by 15 runs after a tremendous Daniel Sams spell and a horror collapse. At 172, Brisbane Heat fell apart losing 7-16 despite Nathan McSweeney’s 73 off 52 innings. The Thunder’s captain, Chris Green, expressed regret for not giving spinner Tanveer Sangha another chance.
Daniel Sams had shown incredible performance with his career-best figures of 5-30, which also included a 4-wicket over from a previous game. Xavier Bartlett took three wickets for 29 runs. McSweeney praised his bowlers’ good performance and mentioned trusting his gut for playing normal cricket shots. The Heat now stands on top of the ladder with four wins and a washed-out no-result game.
